Civic Science Roundtable: GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS: UNCERTAIN CHOICES IN THE FACE OF UNCERTAIN HARMS.
Ethical, legal and other societal values underlie public debate and decision-making about genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
In the face of the uncertain harms of GMOs, we need to further discuss the consequences and impact of this technology.
We will explore the question, how can non-scientists and consumers unravel the scientific complexities of GMOs and enter into dialogue with scientists and policy-makers in ways that build trust to better inform decisions about the future use of GMOs?
